    turns out the mezzo wasn't going to take this lying down. First ride after the above postings, it threw me off. The front wheel came out of its quick release, and now I have a broken clavicle. Bugger.

    Another Dunwich Dynomo here, and fairly regular 100 km rides on my mezzo.

    I just put it in a soft bag, and trust it's tougher than baggage handlers. So far, so good. 10 trips, I guess.

    In Covent Garden a colonnaded porch forms a sort of proscenium arch, where approved buskers can ply their trade. One day I was wheeling my mezzo along the wall you can see in the back of the attached...

    This seems much less of a problem with folding bikes; I've never used a toilet with a cubicle so small a brompton wouldn't fit. On the other hand, it's a rare moment when you find one large enough...

    I was very happy (after dropping the nose a couple of inches) with a B17s on my mezzo. It later moved (just as happily) to my road bike.

    Yeah but no.

    It unhooks from the fork, but stays attached to the mudguard, that stays attached to the frame, so it just feels a natural part of the fold.

    Nice bike.

    To be clear, if you have the same chainring and cassette as you mountain bike, it's geared much lower. Wheel size needs to be factored in.

    So your highest gear on the mountain bike...
